Wow! What's the coverage like, how recent is it, and does he give similarly in-depth coverage to other moves, like 3 ...g6?

Yes, and when will you be fixing that leak in the bathroom sink?

The delay is my fault. I am still toiling away, although not finding as much time to devote to it as I would like. It will be published - at least it will be delivered and I very much hope my publishers will not by then have got bored of waiting.

Hello,
I´m looking forward to read this book, but today I saw on the side of Qualitychess that it is "delayed" Sad !
I hope very much not for too long?
Have you an answer Mr. Cox?

greetings

The Bits & Pieces archive  is here, but I did not find anything on the Berlin. http://www.jeremysilman.com/chess_bits_pieces/archive.html

However Andrew Martin has something to say about the Berlin on his Chessbase DVD ABC of the Ruy Lopez http://www.chessbase.com/workshop2.asp?id=2069

I thought the planned Quality Chess book on the Berlin was canceled so I am happy to hear that it might be on track autumn 07.

There is a German book named "Klassische Systeme oder Spanisch ohne 3...a6" by Varnusz which has c.a. 100 pages on the Berlin defense.

So dear john, please dont sleep, dont go out, just work on this book!


Maybe you should pull a Bertrand Russell. Get thrown in jail for some political protest so you can buckle down and focus! Yes, you would be miserable, but do it for us. Please?

Seriously, is there a projected title or publication date set yet?

Hello Mr. Cox,
there is a german chesspaper called "Schach" and in the mumber 10 of 1999 is an article from Christoher Lutz (9 pages) about the `Berliner Variante`.

greetings

Shereshevsky only gives one game (Psakhis - Romanishin, Yerevan 1982), tucked away at the end of the section on the Exchange Variation.  Not surprising really, as the Berlin had been out of favour/fashion for many decades when the book was written.

In my own personal database I have collected commented games from the internet. If u like I could email u a file with the "Berlin content" of my own database!? (the file is a bit larger than the attachment limit set her on the forum).
These are mainly collected from chessgate.de and kasparovchess.com (now inactive).
The games are commented by Kasparov, Shipov, Shirov, Kindermann, Lutz ++

One of the games I have is this from chessgate.de:
"SO SPIELT WEISS GEGEN DIE BERLINER VARIANTE MIT 7...Se4":
http://www.chessgate.de/training/training_kindermann/training_kindermann.html


Btw, I also seam to recall that "Mastering the endgame" by shereshevsky/slutsky also contains some Berlin-Wall stuff...

Thanks, everyone - cheek, calling the Berlin annoying! Anyone using this book btw should be aware that 6...f6 wins a piece after 6 Bg5. White has some compensation but not enough according to practice, although I know Top Notch, for example, disagrees.

Don't think so (5...Be7, that is).

Think I've found AM's stuff which was on 3...Nf6 4 00 d6?!, but thanks anyway.

That Kenilworthian list is particularly useful.
